Move stories vs. subtasks


Hi there, 

I have a JIRA project with story defined with subtask.

Is possible configure the Scrum panel to see only the stories instead of stories and subtasks?

In addition, Is possible move only the task to the next stage?, that means the subtasks automatically move to the next stage.

Thanks a lot for yours help!

When you define a scrum board you define a filter for the board. In this filter you must select only those issues which you would like to see on the board. Add to your current fillter 

AND issuetype in standardIssueTypes()

If you want to move subtask to the same statuses as stories you would need a plugin for it. For example, Adaptivist ScriptRunner, Power Scripts. You would need to do some coding there. 

If you want to do it without coding then you should pay attention to Automation For Jira add-on.
